Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
We didn't stay for our planned night . When we arrived they informed us that they was not a hotel room available for us They blamed Expedia for this despite having our contact details. We were very disappointed as we had travelled down which incurred travelling expenses there and to travel back home this spoilt our well deserved holiday night away .

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
A very disappointing
Paid in advance for a "luxury double room" and was given a "classic double room" away from the main hotel. The room was tiny and wasn't cleaned properly with rubbish left in the bathroom from the previous guests. We also had no wifi in the room, something that was advertised and which we needed to be able to work. When I asked if we can be moved to the room which we paid for I was told nothing can be done as they are fully booked and when I asked about the wifi was told, "No, it doesn't really work there, you can try coming closer to the window that might work". I would recommend avoiding this hotel.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
So so. Good in some respects not so in others.
Room ok, obviously one of the low end rooms. No drainage on shower or sink though, fully blocked with hair, but nice pressure on shower. Huge party happening somewhere which kept me awake until 2 am, breakfast was lovely.
